Hi @dougmcbride79 

You may elaborate on your requirement and the entry you would like to see when outgoing shipping is added to the Cost of goods sold. 

An existing option that may help is :

  1. use a non-stock item to add outgoing shipping cost on a sales document i.e.,SO Invoice
  2. check ‘accrue cost’ on the above non-stock item  (Price/cost information tab > Cost accrual section)
  3. this generates an entry debiting an expense account and crediting an expense accrual account on release of SO invoice
  4. you can assign a cost of goods sold account as expense account mentioned above i.e.,#3 (mentioned on Non stock item profile or posting class assigned to the non stock item profile)

Relevant screenshot and help documentation link:

Let me know if this helps,

Is there a setting that needs to be turned on to use this feature?  Working on setting up a new client and don’t see it available when adding a non-stock item.
